Gary O'Brien, Kevin Blake and Alan Conway discuss a big weekend as the St Leger takes centre stage at Doncaster while we have Irish Champions Weekend at Leopardstown. Listen to the podcast and get their bets...
Kevin: "The one I like is Hukum [5.1]. He's good and strong, very powerful late on in his races. He also has an ideal draw in one. But if you want one at a wild price then Mohican Heights [29.0] looks huge."
Doncaster - Friday
14:40 - Bombardier Flying Childers Stakes
Alan: "Steel Bull [6.8] may be worth a little investment at the prices."
15:15 - Doncaster Cup
Kevin: This will be a messy race. Revolver [3.65] is my tentative selection."
Doncaster - Saturday
13:50 - Champagne Stakes
Kevin: "Albasheer made a winning debut over this course and distance but Chindit [3.0] was still take a lot of beating."
15:35 - The St Leger
Alan: "I like Dawn Patrol [19.0] at the price and he's be the each-way bet for me in a pretty open race."
Kevin: "The one I like is Hukum [5.1]. I really liked him at Ascot when he won the King George V handicap. He's good and strong, very powerful late on in his races. He also has an ideal draw in one. But if you want one at a wild price then Mohican Heights [29.0] looks huge."
Leopardstown - Saturday
15:10 - The Matron Stakes
Alan: "A cracking race. It's hard to look past Ryan Moore's ride Fancy Blue. At the prices, however, I'll just be siding with Peaceful [3.5]."
Kevin: "Wait as late as you can before having a bet because the market will tell you a lot about expectations for Peaceful. If she's at the peak of her powers I'd favour her."
16:10 - The Irish Champion Stakes
Kevin: "If you're opposing Ghaiyyath you're relying on him not being himself. He's cleaning out the division, as they say in boxing. On paper, you'd be surprised if anything could give him serious pressure here. I don't need to bet to enjoy this."
Alan: "I was surprised to hear Ryan Moore wanted to ride Japan in this. It's a long time since Japan has won and would take a leap of faith to back him. Ghaiyyath has become probably the best horse in the world. It'll be a race to savour."
Gary: "I think Armory [16.5] is on an upward curve and underrated at the prices. He could be an each-way bet."
Curragh - Sunday
15:10 - Derrinstown Stud Flying Five Stakes
Kevin: "I'd be with A'ali and wouldn't be surprised if he won this."
15:40 - Moyglare Stud Stakes
Kevin: "I hope red hot favourite Joseph O'Brien's Pretty Gorgeous confirms the form and gets the job done."
16:10 - Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes
Gary: "Lucky Vega isn't being given enough respect here."
Kevin: "I agree. But I'd go with Battleground in this one."
16:10 - International Irish St. Leger
Gary: "Sovereign stands out for me and the real dark horse of the race Micro Manage."
Kevin: "Twilight Payment has been really impressive recently. He'd be my selection in a pretty good race. I agree that Micro Manage looks a nice horse and wouldn't be surprised if he showed up well."
Alan: Tiger Moth @ 2.78 in the 17:15 at Leopardstown on Saturday
Kevin: A'ali in the 15:10 at Curragh on Sunday
Gary: Mirann at [5.5] in the 14:35 at Leopardstown on Saturday
